Anime All Star is a series of anime shorts and music videos (used in only selected episodes) featuring 30 anime franchises (20 more from the Animetoons series, and 6 more mini short series). The shorts are more reminiscent to the classic cartoons from the 30's to the 70's.
Each episode features an intro presenting 3 anime shorts (or 2 anime shorts with a music video or a mini short shown in between in certain episodes) with a rock band style theme playing (similar to the Cartoon Network series "What A Cartoon!). All the shorts only use title cards (the credits for the shorts are featured on the endings).
